- West Greenwich Village/ Meat Packing District/Unique Interior/ High Line ParkFirst to ReviewAug 21, 2013
The Property is a landmarked residential building located in the Greenwich Village Historic District on the west side of lower Manhattan in New York City.
Bing & Bing chose architect Robert T. Lyons. They had just finished working with him on the Gramercy Park Hotel which had opened just a few years earlier in 1925. The Bing brothers and Lyons also partnered on what was a major technological breakthrough in 1916—creating the world's tallest apartment building at 17 stories on Park Avenue.
The Property is rendered in red and brown brick. It has Art Deco references that include four horizontal, terra cotta decorations using greek key motifs at the fourth and sixteenth floors and circle-in-square motifs at the cornice. Granted an occupancy license on August 7, 1931 the building operated initially as an apartment hotel with a dining room on the ground floor.

A wonderful stay in a great location!I rented this apartment at the last moment, and the owner was very accommodating in fitting me into a cancelation at literally one day's notice. Not only that, but my flight was delayed and he waited for me to arrive until well after midnight. Th... ...read more

For this price, maybe a hotel instead?1.The layout is as described. The amenities were not. The oven was barely functional (no pilot) and the dishwasher did not work. There were two bath towels for two weeks, and one set of sheets. 2.The kitchen was unclean, and roach infested. There ... ...read more
